Feeling "stuck" and frustrated because of a traumatic life experience or chronic stress? Do you have chronic or irrational fear or phobias? I provide professional trauma resolution utilizing cutting edge models of therapy. I help people regain their ability to regulate and normalize the oftentimes devastating feelings and sensations that can overwhelm your life following trauma. These methods are different than traditional "talk therapy" in that the body and it's multitude of symptoms are addressed directly. Through gentle and safe experiential and somatic connection, the body can learn to complete and move the "stuck" energy out for good!

I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I can help you to understand how your thoughts, feelings, behavior are interconnected, and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a vicious cycle. CBT aims to help you deal with overwhelming problems in a more positive way by breaking them down into smaller parts. You're shown how to change these negative patterns to improve the way you feel. Unlike some other talking treatments, CBT deals with your current problems, rather than focusing on issues from your past. The use of humor in CBT is encouraged. We look for practical ways to improve your daily state of mind.

Carl Rogers once said "The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination." If you feel you are struggling, psychotherapy can help you work towards a more fulfilling and satisfying life. By gaining a greater understanding of yourself and learning new ways of being, therapy offers you the opportunity to make positive changes that can lead to improved self-esteem, relationships, and greater well-being. I use an integrative approach, where I take into account each person's unique needs and personal strengths. Together I can help you reach your goals and make lasting changes.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists

Is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy evidence-based?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is one of many approaches within the field of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence-based treatment framework that has been shown to be effective in treating many mental health conditions including depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, and OCD.

What is the difference between Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Despite being part of the CBT family of therapies, ACT differs from other approaches within this field in several important ways: First, it emphasizes acceptance over change; second, it focuses on present moment experiences rather than past experiences or future events; third it focuses on what clients can do rather than what they cannot do; and fourth it emphasizes values rather than symptoms as targets for change.

What credentials will a certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist have?

A certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist in Murrells Inlet will have completed specialized training in this approach at a university accredited by The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT).

How long does ACT typically take?

ACT is a relatively short-term therapy that focuses on helping you accept the things you can't change and commit to the things you can. It typically takes about eight weeks of weekly sessions with a therapist to complete the entire process. You may need to see your therapist weekly or biweekly, depending on the circumstances surrounding your situation.
